I promised myself to wait before I would start sharing this with you all. Wait till I’m ready to talk about my goals and what I’m working on. Where this will lead Moksi Collective in the near future. I promised not to put more pressure on myself - remember, I’m trying to be cool with my ‘done is better than perfect’ mission while being creative.

‘be yourself - you are enough - you are seen - don’t doubt yourself’
But what if the person who needs to read or hear these words the most, is the one that seems so perfect or so strong and so nobody will ask them - ‘are you okay?’Read More
